Re: Panasonic 100-400 Photo Show saga. Buyers warning.

Thanks Bengeo. As soon as any lens becomes white the price becomes high in my experience this could be prohibitive for many.
Thanks for the link
Kind regards Mike

Ahhhh, sorry, I didn't click on your link because I thought you were referring to the full roadmap shown last January.

That roadmap -

https://www.43rumors.com/this-is-the...-lens-roadmap/

did show the expensive M Zuiko Pro 150-400 lens you were referring to but it also showed a proposed (but no definite focal lengths) M Zuiko 'Super Telephoto Zoom Lens' with the zoom range being somewhere between 90 and 410. This lens would be similar to the Panny 100-400 and is the one I was referring to when I said I hope it comes soon.

I can see it being in the 3-4k mark.

I would agree. I'm reckoning the 150-400 Pro will come in at around 3000 - 3500 but I could be well out considering it has a built in 2x converter.

Considering the 150-400 is only due for sale in 2020, I think we are in for a long wait for the non pro version which I mentioned earlier. This means that the only option for us mere mortals is still the Panny 100-400 which continues to be troublesome on Oly cameras.

Why are Oly waiting so long to give us an alternative to the Panny ???

Remember that the 100-400 carries Leica branding. Perhaps there is some technology in there that even Panasonic aren't privy to. Olympus could not risk producing something that is not as good a performer.

It seems like a gap Sigma could fill nicely with a 100-400mm that included their art lens technology. I'd definitely buy one.

I'm surprised that Sigma haven't produced any of their tele lenses in MFT mount.


It's a reminder that MFT is still a 'niche' market, despite its great virtues that we all know so well
